What is air pillow packaging? And what are the benefits? 


Air pillow packaging, otherwise known as air cushions, are plastic pockets that are filled with air and then sealed. This innovative packaging solution is often used to fill the void in shipping boxes which helps prevent shifting, ultimately providing cushioning for products. Companies, both big and small, have made the switch and are now implementing air cushions in their packaging.  

At FROMM, we supply a range of air pillow packaging that is designed to keep your load safer for longer.  

So, what are the benefits of air cushions?  

  • Save Space: Air pillows are shipped flat and are inflated on-site as needed. Meaning you save storage space in our warehouse.  
  • Flexible Options: Air pillows are available in a variety of sizes to fit your specified needs. At FROMM we supply various air packaging solutions for you to choose from.  
  • Time Saving: Wrapping machines can inflate your air pillows quickly, therefore increasing efficiency, and decreasing labour costs.  
  • Lower Shipping Costs: This packaging solution is very lightweight, making it a popular option to help keep shipping costs down as opposed to heavier void fill solutions that may add weight which drives costs higher.   
  • Reduce Product Damage: Air pillows can reduce the chances of your product being damaged as it offers reliable protection and padding for your product during transportation.  
  • Customer Satisfaction: Importantly, customers will receive their goods in perfect condition when packaged with air pillows. Air pillows also are mess-free and easy to dispose compared to packing peanuts or other times of loose packaging materials.  
  • Environmentally friendly: Air cushions are usually created using high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is a recyclable material. For companies wishing to reduce their plastic use, FROMM’s Airpad Paper Cushion Film is a great alternative to our recyclable LLDPE Air film.
